Come to Daddy Depot: The Dad Megastore! From Acrobats to Zookeepers, we have the perfect dad for you! Exchange your old dad for a brand-new one . . . TODAY!
Lizzie loves her dad, but he tells the same old jokes, falls asleep during story time, and gets distracted by football while Lizzie does her ballet twirls. When she sees an ad for a store called Daddy Depot, she decides to check it out—and finds dads of all kinds! Will Lizzie find the perfect dad? Join her on this sweet and silly adventure that celebrates fathers with lots of love.
In this tongue-in-cheek story, an embarrassed girl named Lizzie drags her father to the Daddy Depot to check out alternatives (the premise echoes that of Sanne Miltenburg's recent The Daddy Store). The selections at the store include a Rocker Dad surrounded by bodyguards and a Chef Dad who prepares mashed liver and sardines. No surprise, Lizzie comes to realize that the perfect father for her is the goofy, football-watching model she already has. Snair's (Raisin and Grape) punchy ink-and-digital artwork echoes Stiefel's sentiment, offering visual reminders of how this father and daughter are a perfect match. Ages 2 5.
